Returning Student Mentorship Application

Mentoring in a group is an opportunity to experience the therapeutic wilderness program from a different perspective. It can be a powerful experience for both you as well as the group that you plan to support. Returning Student Mentors provide current Blue Ridge students healthy student-mentor relationships, encouragement, and wisdom. Alumni mentors model consistent effort, adaptive emotional regulation, and thoughtful problem solving with a positive mindset, showing our current students what they may also be capable of.

In order to frame the mentorship experience and create goals and intentions for your mentorship, please respond to the following prompts and questions. Once your application has been reviewed, we will reach out to you with specific questions regarding your application as well as more information about program expectations for Returning Student Mentors.
